    The event, designed to boost the participants' self-esteem, involved all the competitors donning their gladrags and getting their hair and make up done...

    Berkowitz, originally from Romania, is a mother of one, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of five. When she was crowned queen she told the crowd:
    ...all Jews from all across the world will come [to Israel], all of them. And we shall be stronger. We are not afraid of anyone. The Jew will never disappear from the world.

    The pageant was organised by Helping Hand, a charity which helps the 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel.

    With Romanian thighs, who weasels 'n' lies"
